Join Chesterfield's Movember Team!

9 November 2012

Sponsored by

As part of Movember 2012, we are encouraging all Chesterfield fans who are taking part to sign-up to the Spireites side. 

Prostate Cancer UK are the Football League's official charity partner for the 2012/13 season, and are calling on male supporters to grow a moustache this month in support of Movember (the month formerly known as November), the moustache growing charity event.  Each season, Movember raises awareness and millions of pounds for men’s health with Prostate Cancer UK being Movember’s prime beneficiary partner in the UK.  

With the support of its 72 clubs, The Football League and Prostate Cancer UK are aiming to raise both money and awareness of prostate cancer and promote a positive message for men’s health.  One in nine men will develop prostate cancer at some stage in their life and every hour someone dies from the disease.

Fans of each of The League’s 72 clubs are being encouraged to sign up to play their part in their club’s own Movember ‘team’, with a challenge to see which set of supporters can sign-up the most fans and raise the most money.  Last season fans from across professional football raised more than £50,000 and the challenge is on to smash that figure.

Chesterfield are yet to have any sign-ups to their 'team' so we need all Spireites to get behind this worthy cause and help us climb the table.
